Dallas' best cornerback last year, Scandrick was to make just $1.5 million this season, which was set to be fourth among the team's cornerbacks once first-round pick Byron Jones of Connecticut signed.

Henrik Lundqvist seems baffled. The New York Rangers allowed 12 goals in losing their last two playoff games, and one of the NHL's top goalies is at a loss to explain why. If Lundqvist and his teammates can't find answers in a hurry, their chances of overcoming a 2-1 deficit in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference finals don't appear good.
